Townsfolk in Diss are being urged to get behind a new recycling project that aims to use old newspapers and magazines to tackle global poverty.
Community recycling group DissCard, Steward's Paper Recycling in Diss, and the local Oxfam shop have joined forces to help raise funds for the charity.
The initiative, which will begin from May 10, will see volunteers from DissCard collecting unwanted newspapers and magazines from homes in the town using a Steward's van.
The paper will be converted into money in the form of Norfolk County Council recycling credits that will go to Oxfam to help combat global poverty.

David Shawcross, coordinator, said the weekly Monday collections will first begin in the Roydon Road and Shelfanger Road areas before expanding to the rest of Diss.
Householders are being asked to put out their old newspapers and magazines, with the staples removed, in separate plastic bags at the edge of their properties. For more information, contact the Oxfam shop in Diss on 01379 652169.
